For this card I was inspired by the gorgeous the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.

  • Start with a Very Vanilla card base.
  • Cut the DSP 5 ¼” x 4”
  • Cut a piece of Mint Macaron the same size.
  • Measure up 2 ½” on the right side and 2 ½” on bottom edge. Mark with a pencil.
  • Use your paper trimmer to cut on the diagonal between the pencil marks.
  • Turn the top piece in the trimmer and trim off ¾” piece. Save this for the inside of your card.
  • Adhere the small triangle to the Mint Macaron piece (lower right-hand side).
  • Use trimmer and cut the Mint Macaron piece leaving a slim edge to show.
  • Adhere the larger piece to the remaining Mint Macaron piece. Cut the same way leaving the slim edge.
  • Lay the pieces on card front and mark where you want the sentiment stamped
  • Stamp sentiment. 
  • Mount both pieces on card base using dimensionals. Embellish as desired.
  • Stamp inside and add the saved DSP strip.

I love the simple elegance of this card. I am sure I will be this design again.
